Energy Efficiency Work on Campus

Lawrence University entered a performance contract with Johnson Controls to perform energy efficiency initiatives on campus. A performance contract means that the cost of the work is paid for by the savings gained from the more efficient replacement systems. The work will run from September 1st through the end of May 2021 and will include a lighting retrofit for nineteen buildings, a chiller upgrade in Music Drama and fume hood upgrades in Steitz and Youngchild. Johnson Controls employees will be on campus daily during this period in most public campus buildings. There is no work taking place in small houses. The lighting retrofit will run from September 1st – January 7th. The chiller upgrade in Music Drama will run from October 19th -February 5th , and the fume hood upgrades in Steitz and Youngchild will run from September 12th – March 30th. We appreciate your patience as these important cost saving and energy efficient measures are implemented. Please contact Facilities at 920-832-6602 with any questions!
